So I decided to be creative... and I came up with what I think would be a great mentalism effect. Where do I go now? What's the best way to turn this into a reality? I can't make this on my own.

If anyone here can brake it down in steps. Like step 1 step 2...

Sure, we can all try to break it down, of course we would need to know what you are even talking about.

I suppose what you could do initially, is tell us what the effect is and maybe someone on here could tell you if it's already been done.
You'd be in no way divulging any of your secrets, just explain it as if you were trying to sell/promote it as a trick/prop/effect that would make me want to part with my hard earned cash ;)

QUESTION:
If we can sue McDonalds for making us fat and cigarette companies for giving us cancer; why can't we sue Smirnoff for all the ugly gits we've sh*gged ??

How far have you got with it? Is it just a theory at the moment or have you got the method figured out as well?

"CAP OUT"
The mentalist pulls out a sharpie marker and holds it at the bottom (nowhere near the cap) "concentrates", and pop the cap flies right off. The pen and the cap are examenable.

I originally thought of this for like an "elevator pitch" to sell myself, but I think it can play for an audience.

I have a few methods. I guess it would depend on the difficulty of making them and how clean each would turn out.
